Tasty with milk!

Tasty with milk!

Yesterday, while taking a break from working from home (long story, involving an eye infection and insane eye irritation), I wanted to whip up something that I wouldn’t feel too bad about eating, but tasty and sweet.

Typically oats make me feel like I’m doing something good for myself, and reducing the amount of white sugar also does the trick. This recipe is all about the oats, and by using agave syrup, avoids the white sugar as well. This recipe made a bakers’ dozen large-ish cookies.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 c agave syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp butter (room temperature)
  • 1/2 c whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 c rolled, old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 c chocolate chips
  • 3 tbsp unsweetened coconut flake, optional

Method

  • Preheat at 350.
  • With a mixer, beat the egg, agave, and butter together until smooth.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the flour, salt, and baking soda together.
  • Add the flour mixture to the wet mixture until combined. Then with a spoon/spatula, fold in the oats. Finally, fold in the chocolate chips (and coconut flake, if using).
  • Spoon out (or use an ice cream scooper) onto silpat or greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown on top.
